See Section 11 for additional toxicological information.

4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation:

Remove to fresh air. Restore breathing. Get medical attention.

Skin contact:

After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and
shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.

Eye contact:

Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.

Ingestion:

Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.

5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
Flash point:
Flashback:
Flame Projection:

Not applicable to aerosols.


This product exhibits no flashback when tested for flame extension.
0 inches (0 cm)

Autoignition temperature:

Not available

Flammable/Explosive limits-lower %:

0.7

Flammable/Explosive limits-upper %:

9.5

Extinguishing media:

Carbon dioxide. Foam. Dry chemical.

Special fire fighting procedures:

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing, such as turn-out gear. Water
should be used to cool closed containers to prevent pressure build-up and possible autoignition or
explosion when exposed to extreme heat.

Unusual fire or explosion hazards:

Closed containers may rupture (due to build up of pressure) when exposed to extreme heat.

Hazardous combustion products:

Oxides of carbon.

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES


Environmental precautions:

Do not allow material to contaminate ground water system.

Clean-up methods:

Remove all ignition sources. Maintain good ventilation for large spills. Soak up with inert absorbent.
Store in a closed container until ready for disposal.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE


Handling:

Keep away from heat, spark and flame. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing
vapor and mist. Wash thoroughly after handling. Vapors will accumulate readily and may ignite
explosively. Use only with adequate ventilation. During use and until all vapors are gone: Keep area
ventilated - do not smoke; extinguish all flames, pilot lights, and heaters; turn off stoves, electrical tools
and appliances, and any other sources of ignition.

Storage:

Contents under pressure. Do not puncture, incinerate, or expose to temperatures above 48.9 C (120
F). Heat from sunlight, radiators, stoves, hot water, and other heat sources could cause container to
burst.

Incompatible products:

None reasonably foreseeable.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION


Engineering controls:

Local exhaust ventilation is recommended when general ventilation is not sufficient to control airborne
contamination below occupational exposure limits.

Respiratory protection:

If personal exposure cannot be controlled below applicable limits by ventilation, wear a properly fitted
organic vapor/particulate respirator approved by NIOSH.

Item No. :

12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION


Ecological information:

No specific studies have been conducted by Henkel on the ecotoxicity or environmental fate of this
material; however, commonly available data on the material indicate that uncontrolled releases to soil,
groundwater, or surface waters could entail acute and/or chronic ecological effects, depending on the
quantity and concentration of such releases. Releases of volatile components to the atmosphere are
not believed to entail significant ecological consequences provided such releases are within the
exposure levels set forth in this document. Accordingly, all appropriate measures should be taken to
avoid uncontrolled releases to the environment, and any spills or other uncontrolled releases which
may occur should be contained and cleaned up immediately in accordance with Section 6.

13. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS

Recommended method of disposal:

Dispose of in accordance with Federal, State and local regulations.

EPA hazardous waste number:

Waste from this product may be hazardous as defined under the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA) 40 CFR 261. Waste must be tested for ignitability to determine the applicable
